Whether you decide to use cloth diapers (nappies) or disposable diapers, both can be very expensive, if you let them. Cloth diapers generally have a larger up-front cost as you buy the diapers themselves, pay for the laundering supplies, and other diapering needs. Disposable diapers are an ongoing expense. Depending on the brand, the size, when you buy them, and from where, could be costing you an arm and a leg.
